If this were a competition for advanced or professional dancers, then I would be much more critical of pointy feet and floppy hands or bad posture or whatever else the real pros are judged for...
But Kelly brings the hot pepperjack to this summer cheesefest. She is beautiful and I like her attitude. She is not afraid to admit that this is hard, she is trying her best, and she hopes she can stay another week. She certainly doesn't act as if she is entitled to be crowned queen of the dance.
I will grant that Kelly, and many of the other contestants sometimes are caught with unusual facial expressions. But this is LIVE tv, and nothing is edited out, and they also are forced to stand around doing nothing while others are interviewed.
Kelly and the others also, are either stressed about the live dance yet to come, or winded from the dance they just completed. Also they have worked hard for a solid week, and somebody is getting axed...that puts stress and probably a worried or concerned expression on any of their faces. Most of the viewing public would certain look and sound equally stressed and worried.
I would so much rather see honest emotions on the faces of the competitors than fake, pasted on smiles (Trista, I mean you darlin').
